The Tribeca building at 95 Reade Street has all the trappings of a traditional loft building: funky layouts, high ceilings, and skylights, to name a few, and its inclusion in the Tribeca South Historic District will ensure that those characteristics remain largely in place.
The Italianate style building with a masonry and cast-iron facade was built in 1857, replacing the house and stable of James Boggs, a wealthy merchant and auction house founder who would go on to become the first president of the New York Manufacturing Co. Bank. Upon Boggs’s death in 1835, the property passed to his daughter Mary Ray, who would end up commissioning the building that currently stands at 95 Reade Street, the historic district’s designation report reads.
Fans of history and unique architecture may then find the building’s newest loft for sale particularly appealing. On the market for $3.25 million with Jeffrey Tabak and Heidi Schaffer at Tabak Real Estate, the top-floor co-op comes with an unusual layout that works in two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a double-height den, and a classic living room.
The co-op has been updated with a new kitchen with limestone countertops, a Subzero refrigerator, Gaggenau range, and other high-end appliances. The second floor master bathroom comes with a Japanese-inspired soaking tub, large steam shower, and dual sink vanity. The apartment also comes with access to a basement storage unit and shared rooftop.
